The hit rate is affected by the shooting impact of the human-rifle system. The impact response of the human-rifle system is determined mainly by the geometrical parameters and contact boundary conditions. In this study, the height and weight of the considered human model are 170 cm and 60 kg, as these parameters mirror 50 per cent of Korean males in their twenties. The rifle model is applied on the K-2. The impact path analysis of three typical shooting postures: the standing, kneeling and prone shooting postures is performed with experimental impulse-time history during a shooting test. The biomechanical response such as impact transfer path, force history and displacement history are investigated.
